LSU’s offense MIA early against Texas A&M

Zach Mettenberger AP

To say there’s no place like home would be putting it mildly for No. 6 LSU. In two games away from Death Valley this season, the Tigers are averaging just nine points per game.

That average might dip today against No. 20 Texas A&M. Through a quarter and a half, LSU has a whopping zero points on the board and trails the Aggies 12-0. Zach Mettenberger‘s struggles continue with just a handful of completed passes. A&M’s defense is stacking the box and daring LSU to take a shot against single coverage. The Aggies are also doing a good job getting pressure up front and batting balls down at the line of scrimmage.

LSU’s defense didn’t help matters early on, either. A&M was able to rack up 180 yards in opening quarter, though things have slowed down a bit in the second.

A&M doesn’t need to be explosive to win this game, though, since LSU can’t find any offensive rhythm. At 12-0, this game isn’t out of hand — yet — but the lead feels larger.

    This was a post stating what I saw — what everyone saw — right up until I hit publish. Not dissing, just an update. Scores change, and I write these posts fully aware that games can flip like that.

    Mettenberger still looks horrible. I didn’t think it was possible to have worse QBs than Zack Lee and Jordan Jefferson, but Mettenberger has proven me wrong.

    Don’t ever sleep on the tigers….this team has earned the right with dominating play in the last decade to warrant “so called writers” to diss the them…everyone should take notice if this team gets swag watch out

    Ben, I wasn’t dissing either. Just laughing about how quickly it changed. Have been busy this morning and didn’t realize the game was on until I saw your post. Turned it on, and Boom Boom … LSU scored twice as soon as I tuned in. Maybe I was good luck :)
